Presenter ~ Bobbie Amyes    

So you don’t waste money, this workshop will show you how to prepare to search for the information on this pay-to-view website. Some elementary knowledge of Scottish research is important as there will be no time to explain the records in depth, as the emphasis will be on be using the records. Bobbie's introductory course to Scottish research (7th June) could be a useful prerequisite for those new to the topic who want to know more about the records. ScotlandsPeople is constantly expanding its record collection, so we will cover the following records: Birth, Death, Marriage, Old Parish Registers, Catholic Registers, Census Records, Valuations and Wills and Testaments. Recently the wills and testaments section has extended to 1926 and the newly introduced 1915 land valuations include tenants’ names. For participants to get the best value out of this course, have some easy searches in mind, plus some more difficult ones that the group might be able to help you unravel. Bring your research names with you. As it is a pay-to-view website, you will need to pay for your particular searches and any printouts, however if you have an NZSG flash drive you can save the images to copy onto your own computer. (NZSG Flash drives cost $15.)
